there's a problem in your rant there buddy. people will just get them to be like pollard. being line's most expensive ski, there aren't going to be alot of people just dropping cash just to be like pollard. someone might buy them 'gasp' because it works for their style/level of skiing and how they rip it. who gives a shit about the posers? they pose because they need the confidence boost. they throw (sometimes insane amounts) cash into the industry. But who the hell goes out to ski just to point out the posers? I ski because I love being on the mountain, because seeing the smile on someones face after their first 5 makes the day worth it. not to go and point out people that don't give a shit except for how they look. next time a company makes a product, look at the benefeits if any, and look at people that have uses for that product and not posers, because posers don't care about the core purposes of why we ski.
Just Huck It.
